The California Public Records Act (CPRA) provides for the fundamental right of the public to access public records. Requests for public records should be submitted to the Office of the City Clerk.
Public Records can be requested in writing, via postal mail, e-mail, or fax. Requests may also be made orally on the phone or in person. However, to assist with making a focused request for identifiable records, it is best to put your request in writing.
Fees and Charges for Duplicating
The City does not charge for the time and costs incurred in searching for, locating, or collecting records. However, the City charges the actual costs of duplicating paper records (currently $0.10 per copy) and any postage.
